My 12 year old figure skating neice broke her arm yesterday in a non figure skating accident. Thankfully it did not involve the growing plates.
My sister-in-law is really in uncharted waters here about being on the road between being overly protective in her return to the ice and not being cautious enough.
I am interested in feedback from figure skaters who they themselves have done the same thing or know of figure skaters who have broken their arms at this age.
My niece is really upset about this since she really is quite the skater and I just want offer some encouragement based on other skater's experiences.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
