Rob Kenney grew up without his father after his parents got divorced. When he became a dad, he focused on raising his children well and since they have grown up, he wants to help others as well with his YouTube channel, Dad, How Do I.
Growing up in a broken family, Rob Kenney wanted to do better for his own children. He and his wife successfully raised two children who have now grown up.
“My goal in my life was to raise good adults,” Rob said in an interview with Shattered Magazine. “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.”
While on quarantine, he figured that he can still pass on some advice on everyday tasks to others.

“I want it to be about everyday tasks, but I also would like to pass along some of the wisdom I’ve learned along the way to encourage people,” he said to Shattered Magazine. He also shared that he particularly wanted to help those who came from a broken family or have an absent parent.
