Explanation

Start with the first blank because it is easier. The clue disruptive child tells you the mother probably punished the child. Touted would provide you with a sentence that was opposite in meaning and calumniated has a similar negative connotation, but it would not be appropriate.

The second blank’s clue mock can be recycled for the blank. Laud is opposite of mock, and renege simply doesn’t make sense. Select pilloried and deride.

Hence options C and D are correct!
