There have been some really interesting comments and they have made me realize that much of my OP has been spurred by reading things on CWD AND on FB and people's blogs. I guess when people blog about D they are trying to reach beyond the D community. I understand wanting to "get the word out", but somehow I can't help but feel that in ramping up the "Danger, Will Robinson!!" stuff that we run the risk of making our kids look "sick" and fragile and in all honesty that bothers me. And too, I can't imagine that those who don't live it ever get it. Rather, I suspect that they just see us as sort of neurotic and hysterical.
