Discover how to:
Identify and nurture your child's own genius--and trust her, she'll prove that it's there--by studying the traits of giants such as Einstein, daVinci, and Mozart
Develop your child's brain by playing a musical instrument--even if you don't know the difference between an arpeggio and a spaghettio
Transform your home with beauty so that it serves as your children's "third teacher"--and learn why this is so vital to boosting your creativity quotient
Contribute to an ethical renaissance in your own little corner of the earth--as well as all over the globe
Manage the schedules of simultaneous stages of childhood--while watching dust accumulate and toys reproduce--and get a grip on your unique occupational hazards
Maintain and health and fitness regimen of your own--while maintaining kids who are too young to take care of themselves

Carolina Fernandez earned an M.B.A. and worked at IBM and then as a stockbroker with Merrill Lynch before coming home to start her family.
Four children and almost twenty years later, she has come to the realization that the inherent challenges of motherhood make her education and work experience seem like child's play. Coming home to longer hours, harder work, and more demanding relationships left her feeling totally overwhelmed. Her frustration at her lack of ability in tackling motherhood's challenges pushed her into a four year labor of love. Her research into child development, along with indispensable insights and experiences gained along the way, evolved into Rocket Mom.
She totally re-invented herself in the process. She dabbles in the domestic, performing and visual arts, undertaking projects ranging from painting in oils to singing in Carnegie Hall.
She writes and speaks extensively and has a particular passion for inspiring creativity in people of all ages, and for helping moms on the front line.
She lives with her husband and four children in Connecticut.
