...Should she become married or have corporate investments or want to sit on a board, whether in the USA or anywhere in the world, she will subject her spouse, company or investment vehicle proceeds to worldwide USA taxation.
This isn't 100% true as a blanket statement. Just because one has to file tax forms doesn't mean they owe taxes. Being the spouse of an American doesn't automatically mean you're taxed. If the spouse is not a U.S. citizen, not a green card holder, doesn't have any U.S. income, and there are no shared accounts, then their income is irrelevant for the citizen's taxes. AFAIK having an American sitting on a board of a company doesn't mean the company has to pay taxes to the USA, but it does have to disclose certain financial information to the USA.

Back to OP - Agree with others. Wait and let the child decide.
