I personally think 8 is a little young..... my oldest daughter had really hairy legs and I let her shave them when she was almost 11    I dont know if at 8 they realize its not a one time deal and has to be done all the time KWIM.  If its causing her problems at school or being teased about it that I guess I would let her.

I think 8 is too young as well. I think they should wait till they are in middle school. So around 12 years old. That is when my step-daughter started and she now wishes she would have waited till she was even older. Once you start shaving you have to do it all the time.

8 is too young in my opinion. My daughter has asked me if she should shave her legs (also 8) and I was like noooooo way!! Once you start, you do it forever!
