How do you explain the concept of modesty to prepubescent children, especially when they have no experience of the desires adolescence brings? In specific, I have a daughter who is 6 and a son who has just turned 9.

Personally, I've taught my kids to cover up from earlier than that, so when they see adults even slightly exposing themselves, then they will look away or tell them to cover up.

Make them cover up and tell them it's a shame to show their body parts.

Say, "Shame, I can see you" and cover your eyes.
My 4 year old doesn't let us look at him when he's changing his clothes but will allow us to bath him etc..... It needs to be balanced

Of course this does not tackle the concept of the issues.
