You are going to need to take the cover off the seat and weld it.  If you don't weld, then just take it to a welding shop.  Then, the next time your brats get into the car, make sure it is decided beforehand who sits where.   ;D

Depending on where the seat frame broke, welding will work. If it's at the pivot post, find a new frame. The track rail may be more difficult. What year car?

If the rail pulled out of the body you will need to remove the carpet and weld in a reinforcement plate. As to the seat, your best bet is to get one from a junk yard. Also try your local Craig's list - http://www.craigslist.org/ - Remember, Craig's list has a reputation of having a lot of scams.
