I don't see collective childcare as an entirely bad thing, but trying to dictate who can and cannot bear children is something much worse.

But I imagine childcare to be more communal and localized than any idea of bringing in 'certified' professionals.

I would say that is impossible to raise a child in a non collective way. Even in the individualized modern life, those that do not have family to assist with the child, request help from friends and neighbors or hire someone to assist with it.

I don't think children should be raised by abusers, I don't think it's so wrong to want parents to be properly vetted and prepared for childrearing.

You're not wrong, but how would one go about screening parents for the potential to be an abuser?

Build a psychological profile using a variety of both written and practical tests I guess (maybe by giving the prospective parents robot children for a year and record all their responses to different scenarios?)

Lol it's easy fam, just give minors full autonomy and if they hate their birth family they can leave and find somewhere else to live.
