"Dad, How Do I?"
Rob Kenney created a YouTube channel to display a variety of answers to questions anyone would ask his or her dad. Topics such as how to grill, how to unclog a bathtub drain, and how to check the air pressure in your tires are all addressed in the "Dad, How Do I" YouTube Channel.
After Rob's dad left his family when Rob was just 14 years old, Rob realized a need for resources in his own life. For those without fathers as a go-to resource for all the questions, Rob began filming tutorials. Rob shared more of his journey with Shattered Magazine.
