When I tape a rip I make a tape grip rather than putting tape directly on my hand as I find it more comfortable and whenever I put tape directly on the rip it hurts heaps to peel off and it usually rolls up when you swing on the bars.
get a piece of athletic/strapping tape about the length of your forearm and fold it in half lengthwise. Then make a loop at one end and tape it together. This loop can then sit around her middle finger and the tape will cover her hand and you can just secure it at her wrist with tape.
I hope this helps and good luck to your daughter!!
I tried to make pictures to go along with the description......
