My family is building trust (<>.<>)

Hint 2: Trust is related to adjective, but i suggest trying the others first and then the adjective.

I have three meaningful children :3

Hint 1. They all have different age. Hint 1.5 They could, however, has the same size, face, etc (identical)

Parents (mom/dad) always stay beside each children <3

However, I often change my children if I don't like them! :(

I also often change my children with better ones :D

These are common response to my children:

  • We know it's gonna break :D
  • We thought it wouldn't break :D
  • Wow! Who knew that would break. :(

What is the name of our family ( Mom & Dad & Children )

Hint 3: Its not that complex.. its barely programming specific. even a gamer, for example Minecraft player, probably familiar with 'my family', yet they might not figure out the puzzle. The point is you do see 'my family' in daily basis.

Hint 4: My family is the digital / modern successor of a family that usually appear in dictionary cover. However, the older family is not helpful, instead they try to appear trendy. (Who the hell use that 7 cm thick dictionary nowadays..)
