For beginners of iOS 8, this is a good place to learn how to set up and use Family Sharing.
Finally you may be asked to verify the credit card information you have on file, which signifies that you've successfully set up your Family Sharing group.
Family Sharing offers an easier way to share photos, iTunes, iBooks, App Store purchases, Calendars, Reminders and Location among your family group.
On Photos app, you'll see a new stream called "Family." From this place photos, videos can be shared across family members. You can also set up notifications to let you know when others add content.
Once you've set up Family Sharing, everyone can access each others' apps, music, movies, TV shows and books. You can sign into your iTunes account and visit the "Purchased" pages in the iTunes store, iBook store or App Store and download these contents to your own device. Simply choose the family member whose content you want, and download.
From Calendar app, you'll notice that a new "Family" calendar appears. Everyone has access to this calendar and can easily add, remove or modify events. You can also set up notifications to remind everyone about certain events.
Provided you are a member of the Family Sharing, your device will automatically share its location with everyone in the group. To hide your location, go to Settings > iCloud > Share My Location and disable it.
Parents could have control over kids with Family Sharing.

This provides much convenience if you like to pay for family purchase with a single credit card, as the child must ask for permission before making iTunes, iBooks and App Store purchases.
