  7. 7. Why I’m a Fantastic Parent for Adrenaline <ul><li>I’m a good parent for Adrenaline because it is used every day for when I, or others get stressed out. An adrenaline kick is just what the doctor ordered. Another reason I’m a good parent for Adrenaline is because I know where it is produced in the body, the adrenal gland. The last reason that I make a great parent for Adrenaline is because I know that when one has an adrenaline rush, it increases physical performance for short bursts of time for </li></ul><ul><li>that person. </li></ul>
