Privacy is something the Quran emphasized on, even when interacting with one's children. In the Quran, Allah said that the companions of the prophet Muhammed should not visit his house unless with permission. It was said further that once they're done with what they've come to do, they should not wait further, expecting discussions as the prophet Muhammed was not always comfortable with this, but is shy of telling them.
Regarding one's children too, there should be privacy to some extent. Suratu Noor, verse 58 and 59. explained this in details.
"O you who have believed, let those whom your right hands possess and those who have not [yet] reached puberty among you ask permission of you [before entering] at three times: before the dawn prayer and when you put aside your clothing [for rest] at noon and after the night prayer. [These are] three times of privacy for you. There is no blame upon you nor upon them beyond these [periods], for they continually circulate among you - some of you, among others. Thus does Allah make clear to you the verses; and Allah is Knowing and Wise."
This means that before the dawn prayer, when one puts one's clothing aside in the afternoon and after the night prayer, one's children who have not reached puberty should not have access to one's personal spaces.
"And when the children among you reach puberty, let them ask permission [at all times] as those before them have done. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses; and Allah is Knowing and Wise."
However, when they reach puberty, they should ask for permission at all times before being with us.
