    has/had

    Shirley apologised to her mother for not sticking close to her. This caused her to be separated from her mother when they were shopping in a crowded shopping centre.

    She has/had learnt a lesson. Nowadays, she stays close to her parents whenever she goes shopping with her.

    Which word should I use?

    Many thanks.

    "Has" seems more natural.
