Siblings walking in on each other when naked

Ok so i have my son and daughter, she is 19 and she is 17. My son is still a virgin and walks in on my daughter wheh she changes or when she is in the shower without knocking. Is this normal as in to prank each other or should i be worried? Is it normal for them to see each other naked at this age?

Hi @J7mbo , thanks for raising this on the forum! It's a complex one. Every family has different boundaries around nudity, so there isn't necessarily a 'normal'! 
My first question would be how is your daughter is responding to this - is she okay with her brother walking in on her? Her privacy and dignity needs to be respected first and foremost - especially as the teenage years can be a sensitive time around body image and privacy. 

Having a conversation with your daughter, and your son about this could be a good next step (if you haven't already). Checking in on how this is impacting on each of them, and why it's happening. How do you feel about talking to them about it?
