Yesssss..... ??)
No more nails
If it has another cupboard next to it drill through and nut and bolt it.

If not duct tape Wink

Stop smashing the cupboard doors in Wink
super glue
Thanks Mike for a sensible solution , one of the kids broke it whilst I was away.....
I have some hinges with little rawl plugs built in - they might work.
I also have some expanding rubber gromets - they might work.

I'd fill the holes with epoxy resin (Araldite) then fit a plate with rawl plugs, let it dry over night, then do the screws up & fit the hinge. It'll out last the rest if the cupboard ;D
I can post the bits you need if you like Undecided

Failing that drill through & fit bolts Wink

Is the bit of the hinge that we cannot see sunken into the door? If not, remove the hinge unit and move it down a couple of inches.

If it's sunken into the door and cannot be moved, try a mix of sawdust and strong glue (no more nails or similar) to fill the holes, give it a day or so to set, sand it flat then use a bradawl or fresh countersinking screws to screw into the now repaired surface.

Bloody kids.
Keep it foolish...
I agree Bloody kids....... Wink

Will have a try again today or tomorrow and tell you how i get on.

Mike the hinge is sunken into the door so i cannot reposition
