In a simple and straightforward way, she should tell her son that it is not appropriate to be asking other children to undress, and it is not appropriate for him to accept such an invitation from others. Now, there are times when it is perfectly normal for children to view one another in a state of undress; for example, while changing clothes in a locker room or dressing area at a pool, gym, etc. The curiosity is very normal for the age, but limits have to be set about what is and is not permissible.
