Is there any difference between a "hellion kid" and a "troublesome kid"?
Both sound the same to me although the first one might be passé.
Thanks for your comments

    I've never used 'hellion' in my life, and possibly have never even seen it outside a dictionary. I would guess it was more popular in the 17th and 18th centuries.
