Mrs Smith makes a sighting in the wild of a rapidly growing pest, the genus Urban Brat.  "I wish I could say that this semi-feral species of the urban child is rare," she says, "but indeed, their population seems to be increasing. Thus, any school-leavers wondering which field to study at university, might be strongly advised to pursue psychiatry. I think this may be a booming industry in the next decade."  You've been warned.
