A dad is going viral this week for helping millions of people who may not have a father they can go to for advice.
Rob Kenney, of Bellevue Washington, grew up without a dad and often found he had questions he wished he could turn to a father for. When he became a father himself he was determined to be the best dad for his kids, and eventually created a YouTube channel to help other kids, too.
"My goal in my life was to raise good adults," Kenney said in an interview with Shattered. "I never wanted to be wealthy. I never wanted to be necessarily successful. My goal in life was to raise good adults—not good children but good adults—because I had a fractured childhood."
Recognizing that not everyone has a dad like him in their life, Kenney created his channel, 'Dad, how do I?' on which he posts videos instructing viewers on things like how to change a tire, shave, unclog a tub drain or get ready for their first job interview.

Thank you, Rob. You're not only raising your own kids to be good adults, you're giving a generation of kids the support they need to succeed as adults.
