Yes, ban it. Tell her snobbery is vulgar.

Yup, ban it. She's old enough to know that it is a value-laden unpleasant word.

I tell mine that there are certain words which I do not want to hear them use. Chav is one of them. If I accepted anything that is a normal part of kids speak round here, I'd have to listen to some pretty offensive language. We get a lot worse.
