- This method can be used with
await, promise chaining, or traditional Node callbacks.
- If the association is "2-way" (meaning it has
via) then the child records will be modified accordingly. If the attribute on the other (e.g. "Pet") side is singular, the each child record's foreign key ("owner") will be set to
null. If it's plural, then each child record's collection will be modified accordingly.
