“Dad, How Do I?” is Rob Kenney’s YouTube channel where he teaches kids around the world how to do basic household and other chores.
55 year old Rob Kenney lives in Kent, Washington, a suburb of Seattle.
He is now a dad to people without dads everywhere.
When Kenney was barely 14, his father abandoned him and his family.
Kenney explained how his own struggles from his childhood prompted him to start the YouTube channel a month back. “Dad, How Do I?” is Kenney’s way of reaching out to other kids who don’t have parents around to teach them basic skills.
When you visit his YouTube channel, you will find videos on how to check for tire pressure, how to tie a tie, how to iron shirts, how to fix toilets, and so on.
“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.
Kenney has 2 grown-up kids himself and leads a happy married life. His daughter Kristine works with children while his son Kyle is a software engineer.
He said he started making YouTube videos after his 27-year-old daughter would call him with countless “adulting” questions.
“I had written the number ‘10,000’ on a legal pad, that was on May 16,” he said, laughing. Because a week later, his subscriber count would jump to almost 500,00, and then over 2 million and growing.
