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.  

Hidden Gem 'Date Ideas' around Baton Rouge Being a mom of three boys, I'm looking for ways to get out to enjoy a romantic night out or an adventurous day away! Here are my favorite date 'things to do' around Baton Rouge. Sipping on cocktails, and eating dinner at sunset at Tsunami Downtown: This is one is a no-brainer! It's not a hidden gem, but I could not write this without putting this in here. There is nothing like a cocktail, martini, or glass of wine while eating delicious sushi and watching the sunset while viewing the river. Hiking at Tunica Hills: Not only can you view the birds and wildlife, horseback ride, but you can also hike three trails or...
I truly enjoy spending time with my husband. Sappy, I know. I love family time with him, binge-watching Yellowstone, communicating through memes and Tik-Toks, and that we are always a united front when it comes to our children. But even the healthiest relationships need a break from time to time. Taking the time to maintain healthy boundaries and giving each other space is important – especially after 16 years of marriage and 3 children. Romance Break Let’s address the elephant in the room - literally. Intimacy and desire in a long-term relationship seem to fade as couples settle into the daily routine and the comfortableness a secure relationship provides. Of course talking about what to cook for dinner, who is doing the...
Date Night Ideas in Baton Rouge My husband and I get tired of the same ole same ole dinner out for date night. We have started implementing activity dates.

My husband and I are knocking on the 20-year mark... we started dating in high school and were married during college. As I sit back and reflect on the past 20 years, I realize there are a lot of lessons I have learned to maintain our relationship. First, it is ok and I even ENCOURAGE you to have separate hobbies. You are each individual with things that interest you. Spending time away from each other is good for you both. You will have something new to talk about when you are back together and you will each be able to recharge by doing your own thing. This can be a hobby with friends or alone but time away is good...
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,...
