Dear friends and visitors,

We’d like to wish you and your families a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Heartfelt thanks to everybody who has been involved in Whether you have written copy, edited or commented on copy, helped raise funds, co-organised a family day, gave advice, clapped and cheered from the wings, or referred us to a family or a friend…many thanks.

Can’t do it without you.

For those parents still looking for presents for their little munchkins… have a look at – be captivated by the range of toys and books and clothes for adventurous, caring and smart girls and boys. How wonderful to see that families everywhere are positively and pro-actively encouraging their children to challenge any kind of stereotype, helping them to grow up rounded and confident young adults.

2014 is going to be an exciting year, with a make-over of all dsdfamilies copy underway and the launch of a new resource for teens in the spring.

See you then!

The team
