Dads teach us a lot about life, some are lucky enough to have dads who can teach them how to perform basic tasks such as home and car maintenance.
Rob Kenney's dad left when he was 12, without a dad in his life he soon learned that it was hard not having a role model to teach him how to do basic things at home.
Briefly.co.za learned that as a father of two children himself, Rob taught his kids the lessons his dad never did. He was inspired to start a YouTube channel where he would be that dad for kids with absent fathers.
His channel is called Dad, how do I? and he posts instructional videos on how to do basic things, like unclog a drain or check a car's tire pressure. His channel has over 778 000 subscribers
