Rob Kenney's dad left his family when he was 12. One of eight kids, Kenney went to live with his older brother when he was 14, spending his teenage and young adult years without a father to guide him.
Now a father of two grown children himself, Kenney is offering others the fatherly wisdom and skills he had to gain on his own. His YouTube channel "Dad, How Do I?" shares videos on everyday practical things most people might ask their dad like the proper way to tie a tie, how to unclog a sink and how to check the car oil. Since it was launched April 1, the channel has exploded in popularity.
In fact, a Facebook post shared by Chris Hart from this morning describing Kenney's "Practical 'Dadvice'" channel has gone incredibly viral, pushing Kenney even further into Internet Fame territory. Eight hours ago, when the post was shared, Kenney's YouTube channel had 41,700 subscribers. That number has currently grown to 324,000.
