My guest today is Dr. Jason Kahn, a Developmental Psychiatrist out of Harvard. We all know how important milestones are in child development, and the role they play in detecting early signs of autism but do you know when should be worrying about a missed milestone, and when we should just give our kids a little more time? Dr. Kahn is here to help us navigate this and gain some peace of mind.
Dr. Jason Kahn is a developmental psychologist and researcher from Boston Children’s Hospital, an instructor at Harvard, and co-founder, as well as, Chief Science Officer of Mightier.

Communing with nature is one of the best methods of self-care available, and hiking is one of the best ways to enjoy nature.
If you’re a parent who enjoys hitting the trails with your little ones, you’re already aware that toddlers will walk some of the journey and want carried the rest of the way. There are tons of contraptions for carrying babies while on the trails, but what about those in between, toddler years? You don’t want to bring a big bulky carrier for a kid who’s only going to use it some of the time.
The Trail Magik Kid Carrier solves that problem and does so brilliantly.
Invented by a Dad who wanted to take his 3-year-old backpacking. It’s for kiddos 12 months up to 43 pounds. The carrier attaches onto hiking backpacks and durable daypacks that have a waist strap & upper loaders. Weighing less than 10oz, it’s so portable, you can stuff it into the side of your backpack when not in use. It’s a game-changer for the “outdoor adventure family” community.
