Man Who Grew Up Without A Father Makes Videos To Teach Children Basic Household Skills And More

Fathers have an important role in the development of their children and they share equal responsibilities with all the hard-working mommas. Sadly, some kids grow up without a father’s love. This void makes an impact on kids’ lives but sometimes, kids find a way to live without it. Rob Kennedy is here to help those who miss their daddy.

COVID-19 has given Rob plenty of time to do something about himself and other people. He didn’t waste his time, and created the “Dad, How Do I” channel to support dad-less kids.

His story is inspiring and fascinating at the same time. We wish there were more people like him.

Rob’s dad left him and his siblings when the crafty man was a teen. He had to survive the struggle and this struggle actually helped him create the channel and provide “practical Dadvice for everyday tasks.”

Today, Rob is happily married and has two kids, Kristine, 27, and Kyle.

“My goal in life was to raise good adults, and so then when I got to, you know, early 50s, I’d felt like I’d already done that,” the Chicago dad said.

Rob uses every minute of his free time to upload simple and handy videos. His main goal is to help kids do basic tasks. He teaches kids how to tie their ties, check the oil and the tire pressure, unclog the sink or even iron their shirt. How amazing is that?

“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. 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.”

Rob launched his channel on April 1. His videos have reached every part of the planet, and today, many people refer to him as “the internet’s substitute dad.” He has over 2 million subscribers!

Rob is famous on other platforms, too. People have praised his efforts, and some have even thanked him for everything he does.

“His father left when he was 12, now he has a YT channel called ‘Dad, how do I?’ to help kids who’re growing up without dads,” a Twitter user wrote. “Teaching them basic tasks that you’d usually ask your dad for help on. This is the purest thing.”

Rob has the positive energy this world needs, and we encourage him to keep up with the good job. Rob is the dad many kids don’t have and we wish other people follow his steps.
