Mis hijos no tendrán móvil ________ 13 años.My children won't have a mobile phone before they turn 13.Hi, i thought the verb cumplir (not tener) means to turn an age. Thanks, Shirley.

Hola Shirley

Yes, to be very very accurate, "cumplir" is "to turn" when talking about age, and "are" would be more precise for the general "tener". 

Gracias y saludos
