"Severely doubt" for "sincerely doubt"

My daughter is 13, and uses this often enough to make me think she hasn’t heard a word I have ever said! But to her it makes sense, so I thought I would google it, and I was shocked at how many people say and write this. So, how do I convince her that even though it makes sense, it is still incorrect usage?
