You've at least heard "We'll see." or anything related to that coming from your parents.

Usually what does it mean coming from them?

For me when my mom says it (Irks me when she even says it in Spanish!) means that she'll wait until the last minute and say no.

It means that I have to bribe them with good grades

My late father would always say, "We'll see." "Depending on the circumstances involved..." and "I indefinitely promise okay?"

Which when deciphered means, "More likely NO but I'm gonna say it with circumlocution so that you would just stop asking me."

That a determination will be reached in the future.

Is this your first time with the English language?

No, my writing skills aren't so good.

Of course I know the actual meaning but people tend to say something and mean an entirely different thing.

that "we'll see" is usually followed by:

you insisted on doing it and failed miserably = "i told you so" + parental wrath
you somehow succeeded version.A = "hah! you just got lucky" + parental wrath
you somehow succeeded version.B = "wow.. you actually went on and did it!" + parental wrath

here in the motherland parents give their kids the chance to pick out their punishment..

dad: what do you want ha?! the belt or the slipper!?
me at 10: how come cousin chelle only gets grounded and i get hurt?
dad: coz' in america.. kids can call 911 and their parents can go to jail.
me at 10: *runs to the phone and dials 911*
dad: *facepalms* haaay..
me at 10: hey dad.. i think the phone's broken. it only goes tututut~ tututut~
dad: you broke the phone?! *drags me to the bench and proceeds to whip my ass with the belt*
