Dr Ranj is a familiar face to many children who watch CBBC, so this video below may be useful to show them but after a few minutes it does go into more detail, so will not be suitable for all children to watch and understand.

Please read the sites, watch the videos and make your own judgments before sharing anything with others or with your children.
