Bruce Wayne aka Batman saves the youth that Gotham ends up destroying early in their respective childhoods. This seems like a good thing at first being adopted by a billionaire learning how to fight cleaning up gotham city. Yet this is quickly shown to be a lure so Bruce can become "the goddamn batman dad" on a daily basis just because he saved you. Even Dr Leslie Thompkins had to fake Stephanie's death to get her out of Bruce's warped world of costumed parenting.
Here Jason Todd recounts how he wasn't good enough for Bruce and displays the complex hes developed by wanting to be better than him.
Of course once Bruce reels you in with lofty promises about a better way, he suddenly turns into a jerk ass in order to harden you but also to stunt your childhood. Pray you dont fail him either as here Oracle relates to Bruce how much of a jerk ass hes being to Cassie
Of Course Bruce being Bruce still scolds her for failing him even though she didn't really fail at all.
Of course I have to skip over the questionable way Bruce raised Dick because that in itself is questionable and canon now thanks to Morrison.
We have to also look at the way Bruce seemingly favors Tim over all his other "children" because apparently Tim is just that special to him over everyone else. He can even talk back to Bruce.
I guess this is why Tim is his favorite he chose the lifestyle while Dick,Jason,Cassie etc had to be "saved" which apparently is something Bruce doesn't respect.
More bad Bat parenting to come
