Abstract: We structurally estimate the parameters of a collective model of household consumption that includes preferences for children using the Mexican Family Life Survey. The estimation sheds lights on parents' relative bargaining power, their different preferences for children's consumption, and the consumption of children of different gender. We use the model to assess how parent's relative bargaining power, altruism, and gender preferences affect the distributional and welfare implications of targeting conditional cash transfers to women.
