TreeStory.Java - Stage 3. if (age < 13) {//Sorry you must be 13} Even if I put 18, it still runs the block of code.

Why do I keep getting this output even if the age is over 13?

How old are you? 18 Sorry you must be at least 13 to use this program.

String ageAsString = console.readLine("How old are you? ");

  int age = Integer.parseInt(ageAsString);
  if (age < 13); {
    //Insert exit code
    console.printf("Sorry, you must be at least 13 to use this program.\n");
    System.exit(0);
  }
 String name = console.readLine("Enter a name:  ");

String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective: "); String noun = console.readLine("Enter a noun: "); String adverb = console.readLine("Enter an adverb: "); String verb = console.readLine("Enter a verb ending with -ing: ");

  console.printf("Your TreeStory:\n----------\n");
  console.printf("%s is a %s %s", name, adjective, noun);
  console.printf("They are always %s.\n", adverb, verb);



}

}

Update: I do not think its an error in my code, but in workspace, as I tried to copy and paste it from online that everyone says works fine, and its giving the same error. I tried relaunching workspace as well, but to no avail.

Hello, try checking your- if (age < 13); {blah.blah} statement. My story runs with out the semicolon after (age<13). hope it works for you.

haha, thats silly of me, but unfortunately its still giving me that output. Thanks, though.
