In April, Rob Kenney, 55, started his YouTube channel “Dad, how do I?” where he began sharing videos of himself explaining how to perform life skills such as unclogging the drain, ironing a shirt, and checking your car’s oil.

According to Kenney, whose own father left when he was 12, he created the channel to “do my best to provide useful, practical content to many basic tasks that everyone should know how to do,” he explained in the about section of the channel.

In an interview with Shattered, he said that his goal in life was not to be wealthy or successful, but to “raise good adults” – and once he’d achieved that, he realised he had knowledge left to share.

Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Q. Dear Sue I’m trying to potty train my child during this pandemic. I’ve heard that if you want to avoid bedwetting, my little one shouldn’t drink too much in the day - is that true?’ Rihanna from Pontypool



In fact, the complete opposite is true!

To help your child’s bladder stretch and hold during the day and at night, all children, whether they wet the bed or not, should have 6-8 drinks of water-based fluid throughout the day.

They should try to have their last drink an hour before bed if this fits in with family life and is easier to do when you’ve kept well hydrated during the day.

Children who restrict fluids during the day are at risk of getting urinary tract infections and will have a lower bladder capacity than those that drink well and wee at regular intervals.
