"Spawn" still has very negative connotations. I believe it's because it's usually used in tandem with "demon".

I have no problem with "brat" to describe a misbehaving child.
A bad child is a brat.
However, when children misbehave, that is more on the parents than the child, and I feel it's really unfair to slap those nasty, derogatory labels on.
