In addition, this study also aims to analyze the influence of family characteristics, the value of the child, and investment behavior towards children investment expenditure allocation.

Data were analyzed using independent samples t-test and multiple linear regression. The results showed that value of children and children’s investment behavior of poor and nonpoor families differ significantly (p<0.01).
