The Children's Internet Announces Its Stock Purchase Contract Extension

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - March 20, 2008) - The Children's Internet, Inc. (OTCBB: CITC) announced today that it has amended the terms of its agreement with The Children's Internet Holding Company (TCI Holding) to extend the outside termination date of their Definitive Stock Purchase Agreement (DSPA) from March 15, 2008 to March 31, 2008.

The DSPA provides for the purchase of 128,040,988 shares of TCI stock for an aggregate purchase price of $8 million and a warrant to purchase up to 128,040,988 shares of TCI common stock at an exercise price equal to the purchase price per share of common stock under the DSPA.

Richard J. Lewis III, TCI's Acting CEO and the Manager of TCI Holding commented, "While TCI Holding has identified the investment groups necessary to complete its capital raise, the steps to fund the closing are steeped in procedure and time-consuming. To that end, we have a number of professionals working the process diligently and I am confident we will close this transaction."
