"Dad, How Do I?" YouTube Channel Shares Dad Advice For Those Who Do Not Have One

The Dadvice videos have been praised world-wide and the comments are emotional to say the least.

We are all about helpful purposeful content at Family Friendly HQ. We genuinely love providing solutions and tools to help our readers. With that in mind we couldn't ignore this lovely story that simply brightened up our day. This Dadvice YouTube account could be our favourite thing on the internet right now....

Rob Kenney is a doting father based in The US. He has two grown up daughters and a casual 1.4 million YouTube subscribers on the account he set up less than a month ago. Kenney offers

"practical Dadvice for everyday tasks".

The idea behind the YouTube account came to Kenney about two years ago. He mentioned it to his daughter who encouraged him to actually pursue it. When he finally set up the account he had no idea that it would gain so much attention. With over one million subscribers worldwide Kenney has become a YouTube star in a short couple of weeks.

"Dad, How Do I" was inspired by Kenney growing up without his own father. His father walked out on their family when he was just fourteen years old and he grew up missing out on the things that Dads tend to teach their children. As a father he now understands the importance of this on a whole new level.

Kenney's YouTube account is a simple catalogue of "how-to" videos about everyday practical tasks such as shaving your face, ironing a shirt and changing your car's tyre. According to Kenney, these are tasks which many people learn from their father. He therefore wanted to create a space to help those people who do not have a father in their lives.

"Dad, How Do I?" answers questions and provides solutions in a clear and accessible way. The videos have been praised world-wide and the comments are emotional to say the least. Kenney is making a real difference in people's lives and this might just be the sweetest thing on the internet right now.
