  • No, it's not bad. But if he's bored in school, too, you need to make sure they do things that interest him, so his needs are being met.

  • definitely not bad but make sure that he's got enough stuff to do that encourages him and keeps his mind occupied. its when they get bored that the school marks go down. make sure he's stimulated.

  • No. And many children his age are ahead in some areas while average in others. And there are always areas that need a little more time.  So take delight in who he is and what interests him in the moment. Don't worry about where he is and how advanced he is. Buy games that suit his needs at the moment. By the way: I have known very brilliant children who still loved Candy Land even when in the upper elementary grades. It is about meeting his needs not about if he is ahead or behind. Bottom line: every child is "smart" but you have to find what motivates him and what captures his attention. If games made for 9 year olds does that then by all means.
