1) All kids are same whether of Rich or Poor. Kids are naughty and needs to be treated with love and care.
2) Kids observe life. They may not say something but they understand everything. Apu knew that her mother is poor and will not be able to arrange money for her higher studies.
3) Kids if forced for something can be rebellion. Apu doesn’t like when her mother takes admission in Apu’s school and she starts opposing her mother for almost everything.
4) Every child is unique and what they need is right guidance. Kids can do wonders if we guide them properly.
5) One can recover at any stage. Once you decide yourself to do something, no one can stop you.
