    How safe are steam games running on Windows 10

    Your understanding is incorrect. Steam is a normal Windows application which can be used to purchase, install and launch other normal Windows games (among other features).

    Some Steam games may require administrator privileges for installation, typically to install runtime libraries. Others do not.

    If you are not already, you may want to consider using Steam's Family View feature to restrict the features available on his account.

    The software available through Steam is safe to run. However, some of it may contain objectionable content, either in the game itself (e.g, violent, hateful, or sexually suggestive material) or in online content (e.g, other players with foul mouths).

    Not really. The main thing which makes a game a "Steam game" is that it is purchased and licensed through Steam.
