be under (someone's) wing

(redirected from has under his wing)

be under (someone's) wing

To be protected, tutored, nurtured, or cared for by someone. I was nervous starting an internship at my uncle's company, but it definitely made it easier being under his wing. Our parents died when we were quite young, so my sister and I were under our grandmother's wing for most of our lives.
