fly the coop
: to leave suddenly or secretly : to escape or go away
In the morning the suspect had flown the coop.
All their children have flown the coop. [=have moved away from home]

In these two examples, "fly the coop" is not used in the past tense. Is it true that the idiom is usually said in the past tense? Does "How to cope when kids fly the coop" sound strange to you?

play with fire

My example sentences:
- I'd advise you not to date a man that you don't know anything about. That's playing with fire.
- My grandma's doctor told her that anyone who bungee-jumps off the Eiffel Tower at her age is playing with fire.

Do you see any errors in my sentences?

Are there any phrasal verbs that you think most non-native English speakers don't know?

This teacher says that "Yes! I need a breather!" sounds more natural as a response to "The negotiation today is really tough!" than "Yes! I need to rest!" does. Could you tell me why?

- go with somebody's gut

Do these two mean the same?

Here's an example of "go with somebody's gut":
