Abstract: The objective of this paper is to analyse the intergenerational transmission mechanisms within a theoretical framework which supposes a heterogeneous family structure. For that, we propose a modified version of the model of Becker and Tomes (1986) by supposing that they exist two groups of children: the elder ones and juniors. We try to see how according to the results of elder, the parents modify their educational choices or of training of the juniors being given the returns and the endowments
