Both, depending of the situation. On groundstrokes open stance helps generate more power, while approach shots benefit from the gain of precision of a closed stance.

I'd teach her the closed stance. beginners tens to be lazy in positioning and footwork, so while open stance sounds good, it tends to give bad habits to the player. Once closed stance is mastered, make her learn the open stance.
