each step in a flow need a confirm before it goes to next step

Hi Madam/Sir,

I am a beginner of power automate, I have no knowledge of JSON.
I am requested to create flow, it contains multiple steps, when the flow goes to each step, the flow should pause, and certain user will be informed to do somthing, after completing the "something", the user should confirm completion and let the flow go to next step. I use "approve" to do such a control, but it involve "approve" nesting, Power Automate only allow 8 layers of nesting of "approve", I exceed the limit. I did some google, it suggested using child flow, I didn't understand. May I know whether there is anther control other than "approve" that can do it.

Hi,
I think you already figured out the solution, A child flow is nothing but calling a flow inside a flow, create a flow with approval control and call this flow in the main flow wherever it is needed. Since you are using power automate flow trigger("not a direct approval control"). the issue should be bypassed. Please let me know if you need additional info. And also add screenshots for better understanding.

Please accept the answer if it is acceptable
