    I think there's distinction in how this is used, a "crotch goblin" is more specifically one of those absurdly bratty individuals that you're unsure if they need CPS or a damn leash, see also "ankle biter"

      Either that or it's context dependent, a child could be perfectly well behaved normally but if you bring said child somewhere he/she doesn't really need to be and doesn't want to be then you will in short order have one of those aforementioned absurdly bratty individuals and that is now a crotch goblin.

      Sometimes, but tbh it's kind of just used to refer to children in general too, and brand them as all being like that.

    I really don't think that's a good choice of words for children…
