YouTuber wants to help kids learn more while staying at home
In one of the most heartwarming things to hit the internet, one man has created a YouTube channel called “Dad, how do I?” which provides children and teens with “useful, practical content to many basic tasks that everyone should know how to do.”
Rob Kenney did not have an easy childhood. Growing up in Bellevue, WA, in the 1970s, Rob’s father walked out on his parental responsibilities when he was just a teenager. In a recent interview with Shattered, Rob revealed that although his father has custody of him and his siblings, he felt that his father “was kind of done.”
Rob went on to say that one day his father approached him and said he didn’t want anything to do with him or his siblings anymore. “He said, ‘You know, I’m done having kids,'” Rob explained.
Now a father of two, Rob knew he wanted to help other children growing up without a parent. Through his channel “Dad, how do I?,” Rob has been teaching kids and teens all sorts of practical life skills, such as how to tie a tie for a job interview or how to check the oil in their cars.
Other basic tasks that Rob teaches through his videos include how to fix a running toilet, how to unclog a drain, and even how to change a tire. It’s a heartwarming venture that has proved helpful for many. As Rob’s subscriber says, Rob, is “[T]he Mr. Rogers for adults that we didn’t even know we needed.”
