In brief: Flat feet

The age of the kid plays a major role in the treatment of this condition.
The kid may need an orthotic in their shoes. See a podiatrist for evaluation.

In brief: RELATED

Yes, I think they are all related.
You should see an orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist who specializes in pediatrics. Might start with Rx inserts, depending upon findings. Sincerely, Dr. Latva

In brief: Likely physiologic

Most children go through stages where slight genu valgum (the state of the knees angling towards the midline) is actually normal and expected.
Most children have flat feet as the arch does not develop until the second decade. There is no scientific evidence of a minor flat foot causing any significant morbidity. See the voluminous literature by lynn staheli, and feel free to consult ortho.
