A lot of kids grow up without the guidance of their fathers, and did Rob Kenney, of Kent, Washington. His father left when he was a teenager. Rob has decided to put his experience to work and in doing so he has been dubbed the “Internet’s Dad.”
That’s because he has created a YouTube channel called Dad, How Do I? It is full of tutorial’s and how-to videos for kids who can’t ask their own fathers for guidance.
On this channel you can find videos covering how to change a tire, how to tie a tie, and how to shave. Rob chose subjects for the videos so he could teach others what he wished he had known when he was younger.
Though he has a great relationship with his own two children; Kristine, 27, and Kyle, 25. Rob Kenney, who is 55, wanted to help. Now his videos allow people anywhere in the world to become a little more self-sufficient.
Rob learned his handyman skills on his own and from his brother, and though he thought up the idea for the channel a couple of years ago; it was ultimately his daughter’s insistence and then finally being in lock down due to the coronavirus crisis, that he decided it was time to turn his dream into a reality.
If you want to know more about this man, how his channel came to have 2 million subscribers, or what else he has planned you can; in your Good News Story of the Day here. Currently, he’s releasing a new how-to video every Thursday, and a tool-focused video every Tuesday (which he’s calling Tool Tuesday).
We could all use more people like Rob in our lives.
