The apology statement from them will determine how sorry they are. You can also observe how determined they are to rectify the specific mistakes made. You can also put them on a test to ensure that they are really changed.

By the actions. Remorse and guilt are completely different things. Does he seem remorseful in his words and deeds?

A bit remorseful but the guilt in him is overwhelming

Have you asked him why he feels guilt exactly? Guilt is more about self. Remorse would be more towards you.

if they didnt do it again. No apologies could give any assurance that they are sorry.
