TestScore = β0 + β1 EduYrMom+ β2 FemaleChild+ β3 EduYrMom * FemaleChild + εij

where TestScores is the test score of the child, EduYrMom is the years of education of the child’s mother, FemaleChild is a binary value which equals 1 if the child is a girl. The following regression coefficients are obtained using Stata’s regress command.

Model 1 Test scores of child
(1a)Years of education of mother 0.028
(1b)Years of education of motherXfemale child 0.031
Effect of mother's education on female children---- (1a+ 1b) 0.059*
Model 2
(2a)Years of education of mother 0.039**
(2b)Years of education of mother *female child -0.005
Effect of mother's education on female children---- (2a+ 2b) 0.034
Model 3
(3a)Years of education of mother 0.303***
(3b)Years of education of mother *female child -0.047
Effect of mother's education on female children---- (3a+ 3b) 0.256**
note: *** p<0.01, ** p<0.05, * p<0.1

I was wondering whether my interpretations are correct. I am also not sure how to interpret B3, the coefficient of the interaction term, which is insignificant for all the 3 models. I look forward to your suggestions.
