The Children's Internet, Inc. Issues Press Release Retraction

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2008) - The Children's Internet, Inc. (OTCBB: CITC) ("TCI") announced today that the press release they issued on June 5, 2008 entitled, "The Children's Internet, Inc. Announces Definitive Agreement in Principle to Merge," had an incorrect statement which the Company is officially retracting. The incorrect statement being retracted is as follows, "Further details of the agreement will be found in the Company's Form 8-K which will be filed on or before June 9, 2008." That entire statement was made in error and a Form 8-K will not be filed.

The parties did not and have not entered into any material agreement with TCI Holding Company, LLC. The document referred to in the June 5th press release and signed by the parties merely memorialized the intent between the parties to use their best efforts to later enter into a definitive merger agreement once certain promises were accomplished, none of which were met by TCI Holding Company, and therefore the parties did not move forward. As stated in the press release, the completion of the proposed merger was subject to various conditions.

Despite the challenging issues facing the Company we have had several meetings with credible new funding sources who have expressed interest in The Children's Internet® and working with the Company. We are very encouraged by the positive feedback we have received to date. In addition the Company, in conjunction with our attorney, continues to work tirelessly responding to and resolving the SEC matter. A remedies trial is currently scheduled for August 14, 2008.
