I'm not worried about the child too much. It doesn't sound like he was made to do anything that he wouldn't have if his mother wasn't writing about it.  She seems to be more reporting than researching
From experience, I know cello practice or activities like concerts, competitions and auditions related to that, even the level of intensity at that age are "normal" even necessary for some who has an exceptional aptitude. What makes me sad is how the mother not only exposes her most intimate life experiences in a blog, but includes those of her entire family to make it more juicy. Does a child have a choice whether they participate in family reality TV?
