|Comment||Indeed, the pool doesn't have a 1m platform, and the coach did exactly what you suggested, he held her closer to the water from the three meter. He also had me wait for her in the water the first few times, not jump with her. At first she was scared, but after a few times she was jumping on her own and even smiling. I got out of the water and she went on jumping. She says she's still scared, but she feels good about having had the courage. Thank you very much for your advice, it reinforces my idea of not insisting too much. Good luck!|
