I don't think that changes things. Dragging your family out into uncharted space seems like a reckless thing to do.
Rather like packing our family into a wagon and following the Oregon Trail. We live in a very risk averse society today (in some ways) but that's not necessarily how it always was or will be.
That works with the original concept of TNG but not how the show actually ended up - danger inherent to travel into the unknown is one thing - flying your ship full of families into battle with the Borg is quite another. It's no surprise that quite a few episodes simply ignore the idea that there are children on-board.
