It is a form of Child Labour but in a different format.
A child is entitled for childhood and all those that normally come with childhood.
Now look at this boy of 9 years.
He is and is being forced by exciting him that he is a great guy, to spend almost all his time with adults twice his age. A nine year old boy is forced to move with 19-20 year old boys and girls. Academics is just a part of life.
All these child prodigies rarely achieve anything. They only learn a little faster than their peers but when all of them reach 30 years these prodigies dont invent or discover those things which would be discovered or invented after a century.
These children are robbed of childhood. They are born and become adults straight away.
They are denied the joy of journey of time. They reach the destination early and wait there for others to reach and that is the price and punishment they pay for learning all too early. They dont go beyond in 99 out of 100 cases.
This is child labour in a different format!
These parents need counselling.
Let the boy move around with his peers of his age and play and have proper childhood.
When he and his current peers of 19=20 years old finish their graduation and go for work do they allow him to be their peer in all social activities like get togethers etc? No! He can't go back to his younger peers as well as he has lost contact with them. He is lonely in an ivory tower reserved for prodigy.

google mensa and how one is qualified to get into mensa. Parents pushing has nothing to do with one getting into mensa or scoring big on IQ. one is born with an IQ level not trained for it.
