toilet seat hinges rotting away

I have major problems with these, and seem to be replacing them every few
months. The problem seems to be that 3 small boys with poor aim, and a manic
cleaner sloshing bleach about, creates a corrosive mixture capable of
dissolving away the screws (I am aware that movement is involved in this
process as well).

Does anyone have any good tips for how to solve this? Is there any
particular type of hinge which performs better?

I don't think persuading the boys to sit to wee will be possible!!

Chrome plated metal fixings are better in my experience. A smear of Vaseline
will protect against corrosion.
