    the peril of over something

    It was my first time to see "the peril of over XXX", I know the peril it means dangerous, but when we use "the peril of over XXX ," what's that mean? and how can we use it properly in a sentence? Thanks!

    Sounds like the speaker/writer is accustomed to saying: "Just wait till dad gets home. You're gunna get in trouble over that."

    the forms 'peril' can take are:
    the perils of...
    (do something) at your/one's peril
    in (or at) peril of...
