Toddler Tricks - 102: "We'll See"

Problem: Your kid wants something that you aren't going to give him. Maybe just not right now, maybe never ever ever. But the child has trouble accepting the word no, and you don't have time to get into a twenty-minute reasoning match with them. Or maybe you are in public and you don't have the patience to wait out the inevitable tantrum.

Solution: "We'll see" is magical. At least over here. Because the kids think it means yes. Even though they know it means we'll talk about it later. They accept it better than later, or I don't know. I'm not sure why this is. Perhaps because they know that we'll see is the last bastion of hope before straight-out no and they'd better accept the terms. If you say later, they wonder why not now? But there isn't really a comeback for we'll see. Not unless they want a no. And if they push me after a we'll see, tantrum be damned, the answer is no. We'll see means: shut up. So far, it's worked great.
