Everyone reads comics the way they want to. You don't have to accept changes you don't like.
In my version of the DC Universe, Batman was always a loner.
Then he (with great reservations) took on Dick Grayson as Robin.
As Dick grew up and conflicts developed between Bruce and Dick, he became Nightwing.
Batman eventually took on another protege - Jason Todd.
Jason was killed by the Joker - proving A) that Joker was as homicidal as ever and B) confirming in Bruce's mind that there should NEVER be another Robin and that he is the grim loner he's always been.
End of Robins. I do not recognize any Robins thereafter, and only read Batman comics in which no Tim Drakes or Red Robins or Red Hoods or Damians or anyone else appears (with the exception of the girl robin in Batman's end-of-days The Dark Knight Returns). If said characters appearance is brief (like in some of the 'Court of Owls' Snyder Batman stories of the 'New 52') I just conveniently skip over those panels.
