    THIS CONDITION CAN AND USUALLY CORRECTS ITSELF BY THE AGE OF 9 OR SO DEPENDING ON THE CHILD. If persists after a few yrs past 9 surgery may be required.

    Riding a trike will help strenghting the legs and knee area but little to straighten the legs.

    He or she needs a medical opinion to determine what is wrong. It could be a deformity that can be corrected by surgery. It could be lack of vitamins, especially D, causing weak bones. 

    I would recommend balance exercises on a simple balance board to encourage correct posture. It would take too long to explain that one here. 

    See a specialist though.
