Ivan Illich’s speech to the Conference on InterAmerican Student Projects entitled To Hell With Good Intentions is ironic, seeing as he criticizes humanitarian efforts in Mexico and Latin America to the people who volunteer to help these impoverished countries.

When reading about PTSD in The Last True Story I’ll Ever Tell by John Crawford, I learned that sometimes you couldn’t trust everything being told to you from someone who just left a war zone. The novel takes place when a veteran returns home after being deployed in Iraq. We spend most of the novel following John around after returning home from combat.

The negatives effects – would be that the carer could be stressed about looking after the infant as they might be too small for them to hold or carry. There are many negative effects as looking after infants can be quite hard and upsetting at times. Also, an effect linked to this would be stress of responsibility the informal carer might think that they might drop the baby and don’t want to risk that happening so they just play with her/him on a little play mat but, on a safe place like a seat or bed with a border. Another negative effect would be that maybe they couldn’t supply for the infant like buying nappies or powered milk etc. In addition, being bored of looking after the baby as they are too little and the carer can’t play with them
