English term or phrase: the best predictor for children to thrive
Hi,
I was wondering about the meaning of “the best predictor” in the passage below: I think it refers to “secure attachment”, not to “that kind of presence”… What’s your opinion?
Thank you very much for any hint

****


Without insight and a coherent narrative that gives us a founda¬tion for understanding ourselves and how the past has impacted who we are, it is more difficult to be fully present as a parent and to pro¬vide the type of safe, soothing communication where the child feels seen and secure. Remember the four S's (safe, seen, soothed, and se¬cure)? That kind of presence in a child's life ultimately leads to secure attachment, ** the best predictor ** for children to thrive. When we haven’t made sense of our own past, we are quite likely to repeat the mistakes of our parents as we raise our children.
