In brief: Control activities

Keep him busy with some activity that makes him tired and follow with time of calmness.
Learn how to harness his energy.

In brief: Energy is good

Better to find sufficient learning opportunities to take advantage of his energy than to take away his gift.
Have him help you with housework and chores. If you don't have enough energy to devote to his upbringing and education, better to find help. Enroll him in sports, arts, music, and other activities. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
