    For instance, in the text box that reads “You Don’t Have to be Perfect to be a Perfect Parent. There are thousands of kids in foster care that will take you just as you are” the first sentence “You Don’t Have to be Perfect to be a Perfect Parent.” is a slightly larger font than the rest of the text. Therefore the PSA wants to familiarize you with the message that even if you are not perfect, you can still be a perfect parent to your child. The text font is also something to take in. Although…
