My cousin had one and my aunt plucked it ever since she was a baby. As a preteen she developed tricotelamania. It's obsessively pulling out your own hair. She pulled out all her eyebrows and lashes and took big clumps out of her scalp. She's been treated for five years and is on several medications to control it.
I have no clue if the plucking caused or contributed to the problem, but it makes me think twice.

When my youngest son was 13 I waxed his heavy brow at his request. I did it a couple of times and then he started shaving it. His father was more bothered by the waxing of a male child than anyone else. I think it depends on the age and maturity level of the child. I would not have done it with a younger or less mature child.
