Query to find tables with FK references to $db.$table:
FROM information_schema.table_constraints AS c
INNER JOIN information_schema.key_column_usage AS u
USING( constraint_schema, constraint_name )
WHERE c.constraint_type = 'FOREIGN KEY' .
AND u.referenced_table_name = '$table'
ORDER BY c.table_schema,u.table_name;
