Rob Kenney is looking out for kids who don’t have a father figure in their life. His popular YouTube channel,  “Dad, How Do I?” has recently gone viral. There he teaches skills you would normally ask your dad about. 

According to an article in Shattered, Kenney wants to leave a legacy, particularly for those who come from a broken family or have an absent parent. Kenney’s own father left when he was still a child. After raising two children of his own, he started making videos to help fill his empty nest. 

So far, the videos cover topics like checking the oil, checking your tire pressure, how to fix a running toilet, how to tie a tie and how to iron a dress shirt.

After the outpouring of support made its way to Kenney’s various inboxes, he shared a video to his account thanking everyone for their kind words.
