  1. When you defined the feedback method, you forgot to indent the code within the method.
  2. You don't need to add (self) when you're returning self.praise.
  3. You do, however, need to add empty parentheses to self.praise and self.reassurance when you call them in feedback. Even though you're not passing arguments, you still need these empty parentheses or the memory location will be called instead of their strings.
  4. praise and reassurance don't return a print statement, so you need to add print statements in order for their strings to print to the screen. There are a couple options as to where to put a print statement for each of them.
