My son used my iPad and now I can't update apps as it is asking for his password not mine

I am logged in as normal but that I'd request doesn't change. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities

     

    He logged in using his Apple ID and he installed apps. As you are using your Apple ID now, the App Store is asking you for his Apple ID to update the apps he installed, so type his password and these applications will be updated.

     

    There's no workaround, apart from downloading those apps with your Apple ID. If you don't need them, you can just delete them

    If they are Apps that were downloaded / purchased using your son's Apple ID that is why you cannot update them. They are tied to his Apple ID.

    The apps I am trying to update are ones I installed not my son

    He logged in to check something I don't believe he installed anything.

    My ID works in other areas just not apps update

    He installed apps with his Apple ID and they require his password to be updated. Type his password to update them, don't update the apps or remove them if you don't need them, so you will get rid of this message

    The apps I am trying to update are mine
