Russian for "children's home"

Why is the anglicized "detskiy dom" incorrect and unacceptable to Duolingo?

Maybe because what you wrote is "Orphanage" and "Children's home" is "Dom detey".

For the same reason that you can't write 我有猫 in English, I guess

As I just wrote in my other comment, Duo perfectly allows English lettering based Russian answer..So that answer in question should've been accepted..I type this type of answers on regular basis..and they are usually accepted as "correct" ,unless Duo simply does not have that particular translation "in stock"

I finally found what worked: "det-skii dom". Thank you all for your guidance and suggestions.
