Both of my children are grown but recently I have got my daughter back home at the age 25

She is a wonderful young lady , she is also a mom of 3 and recently separated.She is going through a difficult time and my problem is that I am far to protective & I find myself worring all the time ,its like she is a teenager all over again ,I khurt for her and just want to protect her. What can I do to not crowd or invade her to much, yet still love & care for her it is so difficult to treat her like another mom when she is hurting so bad . Thanx Kat
