batman's thoughts on the robins

Batman: I’m reminded of when I would first patrol with Robin. My gut instinct was to leap into every fray. Dick Grayson, being the first Robin, despite having all the skills the others would never have, actually had it the hardest. Before Dick, I never had a partner. It’s hard to stand back and watch your…protege learn as they go. After Dick, there was Jason Todd. Maybe I should’ve stayed closer. Maybe I should’ve stayed a little further back from Tim Drake. And Stephanie… Bottom line… there isn’t any handbook on how to do this job.
