From teaching them how to tie a tie to ironing dress shirts, fixing clogged drains, and more. For Rob Kenney, growing up without a dad meant that he wouldn’t have his own father teach him how to change car oil, install a shelf, or find a stud in the wall. That’s what motivated him to start his YouTube channel and help those who are in the same position that he was once in.
Filling the Void of Having No Dad
Kenney aims to teach valuable lessons to kids that most dads are meant to teach. Even though he only launched his YouTube channel 2 months ago, he already has more than two million subscribers. Kids and grown adults follow his clear step-by-step instructions for numerous jobs like jumpstarting a car and more.
While some of his most loyal fans are telling him to monetize his account, Rob mentioned that he didn’t start this channel for the money. He thought he would only have 30 or 40 subscribers – which he was content with. He also wanted to stress that this channel isn’t only for kids with no dad, but for young women, adults, and more.
Becoming a Role Model for Kids
Rob Kenney’s childhood is what makes him a role model for kids. Rob’s parents divorced when he was 14 years old, and they both decided that they were done with parenting. Rob moved in with his older brother and learned the lessons he needed in life without his parents in his life. However, that didn’t stop him from marrying on his own and having his own kids to whom he’s a very devoted father.
