 What is knee Knocking? 

"Knee Knocking", (Genu valgum) is a type of  bony deformity in which the knees, touch each other while standing, and the ankles are apart. Often, young children of average weight while in standing position may have legs turned inward. This kind of posture is found in toddlers, which can help them to balance their weight when they begin to walk, stand and run in the earliest years of age.

As the child grows in age up to  7 or 8 years, the position is corrected by itself and child balances its weight with normal posture. At this age, child balances his weight by pacing his feet together on the ground in proper position and knees are not turned inward anymore. But if the knee knocking still occurs after this age, it may need medical treatment.
