Please note that this is *NOT* a way to "get them synched again"
In fact if you have to skip a replication statement on the slave then it is usually a sign
your slave has different data than you master already. Skipping statements/errors may
keep replication running, but you're just masking problems.

Yeah Daevid! I know very well the issue!
first set the slave to READ ONLY
then there is a configuration option to tell the server to skip some type of
But, But, BUT!
What I did is to remove the constraint on the table of the slave so that you
can control better the thing.
Because if you systematically skip the 'foreign key forcing' error, you will
skip them with any table,
if you remove just that constraint on that table you have the situation more
I think one of these two are enough, the cron is very not recomended!
