Under my wing


To accept an apprentice.


I have watched you flounder about for long enough, I will take you under my wing, teach you the trade, and make you the best honey dipper in the business.


Comes directly from observed animal behavior – birds obviously. Mother birds sometimes shelter chicks under their wings.

This protecting and nurturing act of birds reasonably mirrors the mentor-protege relationship.
