You need to decide what is private and make an effort to keep it private. If I'm going to have a conversation on the phone that isn't appropriate for my child to listen to, I excuse myself to someplace private in the house to have the conversation. If I have papers I don't want someone else to look at I put them way. I think it is unreasonable to expect a child to avoid listening to a conversation when you are having it in the same room they are in.
I would also say privacy is a courtesy to be extended to children as well. For example, our son knows we knock on his bedroom door just as we expect him to knock on ours.

I do agree that children need to be respected and given their own privacy. However, I do not agree with the fact that I should to go into a private room every time I want to talk on the phone. Sometimes I just want to shmooze as I cook dinner and we live in a small house and dd is within earshot. .
