What does beat me up mean?

My 6 year old daughter Jasmine asked me a question yesterday that had me lost for words. She explained how her "friend" from school had said to her that she was going to get her two older brothers to beat her up.

Jasmine then asked me: " Daddy, what does beat me up mean? "

I am still stumped for an answer.

Why would anyone want to beat some one up?

That is when you say to her. "darling daughter, whom i love with all my heart, 'beat me up' means harming or hurting someone. It is called a threat and it is something you should never do. Some people make threats when they get angry, what happend with you and your friend" "If you ever feel threatend, or sombody threatns you, tell me and we can talk about it, with out beating anyone up" Not sure if a six yr old would get all that, but i have faith, i remember myself when i was six, and this is how i want to talk and explain things to my children.
