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.
