Find out why Ms. Hatton is such a popular, relevant and family-oriented humor columnist. She always delivers the big laugh.
WHY A HUMOR COLUMN?
In today’s world, filled with much negativity, violence and hatred, a little levity goes a long way. Back when Erma Bombeck’s column, “At Wits End” was popular, readers lined their refrigerator doors with cutouts of her article. She clearly painted scenes of family, parenting and children through a comic lens like no one before her. She blazed a trail for humor columnists and the demand for a similar voice is needed more now than ever. Stacey Hatton, a mother of two precocious and hilarious daughters, has delivered this style for the last eight years featured in The Kansas City Star.
WHAT’S PROMISED IN LAUGHING WITH KIDS EVERY WEEK?

It’s with strong family values and a unique sense of humor that she routinely conveys every day stories like no other humor columnist.
“As soon as I read Stacey Hatton’s fishing column, I was — you guessed it — hooked. In fact, I’ve been hooked on Stacey’s writing for a long time. Whether she’s musing about grocery shopping with a second-grader or the mystery of kids’ teeth, she’ll have you laughing so much that you’ll be hooked, too.”
