Yeah, DS9 Alexander just struck me as a bumbling Klingon teen with daddy issues. As for the age 8 thing? Maybe Klingons grow up more quickly, and I don't find it hard at all to believe the Klingons would take fully matured people in the middle of a war no matter their age. It is a warrior culture.
I think the Doc in VOY actually mentioned Klingon's aging quickly, sort of as a throwaway continuity bone to explain Wildman's rapid age jump.
