Does anyone else have a problem with their child peeking on people in the washroom?

I recently remarried and moved to British Columbia from New York with my husband. My 6 year old was fine at first, but now she's been trying to sneak into the bathroom while her step dad is taking a shower or doing other things in the bathroom. She's also burst into our bedroom while my husband and I are having sex- she hasn't seen much.

It's not completely new because she was starting to do it while I was still in New York with my parents. She'd try to break in on my dad while he was in the bathroom. But my parents have more locks on more of their doors than we do here.

Now I'm not trying to keep my daughter from knowing about anatomy or feel ashamed of people's bodies or her own. She asked about where babies come from and I told her and she knows the proper terms for male and female anatomy. I'm just trying to figure out how to better explain the need for privacy. Because right now when my husband and I try to explain it she giggles or ignores us.

Well, next time she barges in on you tell you that you have already told her once not to do it, so now she is going to be punished. And go to lowes and get some door knobs with locks.
