tvoivozhd "should" is meaningless---in today's society (and  tomorrow's 
too), mother doesn't stay home to watch and take care of the kids.  So 
who else can?---only the state.  With the U.S. in the identical position 
in this respect as was the Soviet Union, which established combination 
daycare centers and schools in residential neighborhoods---all with 
walking distance, a proven highly successful solution is the obvious one 
to follow---and it is equally obvious you can't turn the kids into the 
streets to fend for themselves.
