mischief and dwarves

Very mischievous, are dwarves.  That's what explains echoes, after all:  dwarves mockingly repeating what you said.

Now how to convey this when it's just part of the wild and wonderful world that some young people are taking the tour of.  And not an in-depth one.  This is to alert them to how things are to influence their decisions in career and school paths.  As in, deciding whether they would rather engage in ordinary jobs of farming, baking, sewing, and the like, or keeping the dwarves' mischief out of their lives.
