After growing up in a dysfunctional home and being abandoned by both parents as a young teen, Rob Kenney knows the importance of those little life lessons most kids learn from their parents. There are so many simple tasks that kids might not learn if they don’t have parents that could teach them. So once Rob raised his two children to be successful adults, he decided to start a simple YouTube channel to teach people (kids and adults) some of the basic tasks that you might usually learn from a dad. He called his YouTube channel “Dad, How Do I?” and it’s becoming filled with great, simple videos that anyone can learn from.
Need to know how to check your car’s oil? How about how to tie a tie? Ever wondered how to iron a dress shirt? Rob is there to show you how to do it. He’s recently become somewhat of an internet sensation and his subscribers have skyrocketed to nearly 2 million! Wow! It’s amazing how many people appreciate his laid back style of teaching the basics. He’s also been interviewed a few times. You can read more about him here.
Every Tuesday Rob will be posting new videos about a different tool. Learn all about different tools and what they’re used for. I didn’t realize how important this is until I married someone who didn’t know anything about tools.
And make sure you scroll through his video library to see all the other helpful ideas you might not have known you didn’t know! Isn’t that what they say? You don’t know what you don’t know.
