    Default mischievous, naughty

    1. What are differences between Mischievous & Naughty?
    2. Are they only talking about kid's behaviour?
    3. Any other common verbal expression with the same or similar meanings of Mischievous & Naughty?
    Thanks

    Mischievous can have a positive connotation- a mischievous child could be likeable.

    "Naughty" usually has a negative connotation. A possible exception is in the world of sexual behavior, but we won't go there.
