Hi there, Chaquayla Halmon! Looks like you're doing pretty well so far. So this class has three methods that are all "attached" to the Student. You're trying to pass self into a praise function, but the praise function already has access to the Student. The student is the instance of Student that it's referring to.

Instead of:

praise(self)

You're looking for:

self.praise()

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
