For example, if your children will only eat certain things, tell others about this issue ahead of the meal. You do not want someone to try to be helpful and coax your children to eat something you know could cause a meltdown. In addition, if your children do not like to be hugged and they have an aunt who is a hugger, ask their aunt beforehand to avoid hugging the children.
