This paper presents the overall results from a study on family budgeting practices in households that are part of child-sensitive social protection initiatives developed by Save the Children in India, Nepal and the Philippines. The study investigates how financial behaviours are influenced by family budgeting sessions given to households as part of a parenting programme package. The most significant change across all countries is that households are increasingly setting aside a part of their budget for savings.
