My retainers fell out of my pocket, and I didn't see them, and when I got up I accidentally stepped on them and broke them. It was my last chance, it's the third time I break them. I've had them for a year without breaking. What should I do?

I looked around and they do make a non-toxic Super glue that should work for you. Just make sure you ask for the non-toxic type. Maybe that will do the job for you.

It sounds like you're more worried about telling your parents than you are about actually breaking your retainers... If that's the case I would find a way to break the news to them so they don't get as upset.

From a parent's perspective, it is frustrating to spend money on something only for your kids to break it several times, but in reality these things happen, and it's not like you did it on purpose!

Perhaps try suggesting a way you can chip in to covering the costs of a new retainer? At least this will show you are trying to own up to your responsibilities. I'm sure it will work out ok in the end.
