Baton Rouge marriage help

Being a great mother isn’t just about putting the kids first. It is also about pursuing your career if desired, finding free time for pursuing your own hobbies (even if that’s a workout corner at home) and fostering an environment where everyone is comfortable. Of course, it can admittedly be challenging to find time for marriage amidst motherhood, but at Red Stick Mom we aren’t afraid to discuss healthy relationships, divorce, dating and even your sex life. Whether your children were conceived naturally, became a part of your family through adoption or were welcomed after miraculous IVF, it can be hard to stay patient with the kids and our partners at the same time.

At Red Stick Mom, our team of 25+ local Baton Rouge mom writers have a ton to discuss with regards to marriage and relationships, as we all know that good relationships take intention, hard work and many times a healthy dose of therapy.

Keeping your marriage and relationships healthy and fun can be extremely hard, but at Red Stick Mom, we also believe that it is 100% possible with a little bit of effort and a great (and honest) mom community around you. Whether it’s a fun night hanging out at home, or getting out of the house to enjoy one of the best restaurants in Baton Rouge, we understand that sometimes you just need a nudge to enjoy time with your partner.

We’ve got ideas on how to keep a strong circle of friends and family, whether it’s ways to bring new people into your life or how to keep toxic people out of your life. We’ve also got thoughts on how to find time for marriage and relationships while maintaining a tough schedule

The women at Red Stick Mom are Baton Rouge moms who understand the pressure of raising kids while also trying to make marriage work! They are willing to share everything from the book that will change your sex life, to what it’s like to raise kids as a single mom, to navigating grief amidst your marriage and motherhood.  

A former counselor of mine once taught me an important tool for communication that is great to do in any relationship whether it be a marriage, family, or friendship. I was encouraged to talk to my family each day about three things that happened during the day and how this made me feel using this list, SoulWordList. Then each family member took their turn doing the same thing. This can be a great dinner table conversation without technology present. For example, I had a call with my mother, catching up on 'life' and this made me feel 'peaceful.' This emotion makes me feel relieved, at ease, calm, comforted, cool, relaxed, composed, and protected. First, it's very important that, when speaking with others,...
I was in my senior year of trade school when I took a drive to Bossier City, Louisiana. I wanted wind chimes outside of my apartment in Minden. All of the beautiful chimes were out of my budget range. I went home empty handed. On my way back home to Minden, I was in the left lane passing a slower moving car over a hill when I was T-boned on the passenger side of my car. I was rattled by the experience; but I had survived and I was grateful that the situation was not worse. My husband, Cameron, and I moved to the city of Baton Rouge in 2015 and started our family in 2016. We knew we were...
It was Tuesday morning when I told my son, David, to take off his pajamas and put on his clothes for the day - for the fifth time.  Repeating myself is a pet peeve of mine.  I was becoming more frustrated by the second with my little human.  At some point during our exchange, I had an out-of-body moment where I was looking at the situation and started laughing at the nonsense of it all.   Let’s face it, parenting is hard.  But with books like “How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen” by Joanna Faber and Julie King and “The 5 Love Languages of Children” by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell, there’s guidance out there for us parents to...
I remember the whirlwind of thoughts and feelings I had while being pregnant: “Wow, my body is changing rapidly before my eyes. My skin, hair and nails look amazing! I feel sick. Everyone is being so nice to me. I feel sleepy and dizzy. I love my darling husband. I wonder if we’ll have a boy or a girl. I’m hungry. Please don’t touch me.” The day our son was born, a switch flipped. I was no longer the young lady with random thoughts before. I was a mother. And I felt a heavy burden of motherhood with very different thoughts and feelings that swept over me: “Will my baby feel loved enough? Will he love us? What if I...
I've seen it time and time again - the woman scorned. Her husband: a no-good cheater who destroyed their picture-perfect life. This isn't that story. Instead, I was the no-good cheater, the one who would have been branded with that scarlet A. I met my husband when I was 18 years old - a child, one who had been sheltered for a long time before being essentially abandoned to raise myself. He was a gift. I found him when I was rebounding from a toxic non-relationship in the midst of dealing with my younger brother dying from cancer. He was sweet and pure and exactly what I needed at that moment. And once I found him, my whole world revolved...
