Man who grew up without a father creates ‘DAD, HOW DO I?’ to teach children household skills
If you have been stuck indoors for the last few months thinking, “Where did all the positivity go?” well, do not despair because there is still some left.
Rob Kenney’s explosive YouTube channel, “Dad, How Do I?” has lifted the spirits of many people since it went viral. Furthermore, the story of Kenney and his dad is truly touching.
When he was 14 years of age, Kenney’s father left him and his siblings, according to an interview he did with Shattered magazine. After his father abandoned him, Kenney started living with his brothers. He is now married and has two wonderful children of his own, both of whom are grown up now. His 27-year-old daughter, Kristine, is highly educated and works with children. His boy, Kyle, works as a software engineer.

Inspired by his own story, Kenney created “Dad, How Do I? about a month ago, where he shares “practical ‘Dadvice’ for everyday tasks.”
He says he wanted to leave something behind, mainly for people who struggle with a dysfunctional family or absent parent. His videos are so far covering topics like checking your tire pressure, checking the oil, how to tie a tie, how to fix a running toilet, and how to iron a formal shirt.
“I want it to be about everyday tasks, but I also would like to pass along some of the wisdom I’ve learned along the way to encourage people,” Kenney said. “I thought I was just going to be showing people how to do stuff, but it’s kind of resonating on a whole different level.”
If this doesn’t make you feel good about humanity, you are a shithead
Also—Rob Kenney (not on Twitter?) probably needs to clear his ‘Father’s Day’ for a ton of Zoom interviews… https://t.co/kF27iujQkZ
