This is the approach I would advocate -- with one additional step. Try
to understand why they wanted to do it their way. If you make an effort
to understand their reasoning, they may be more receptive to

The
third approach is Let's sit down and go through this together, with a

editorial suggestions I'm making. This is the most time-consuming
approach, but you gotta do what you gotta do, and this may be the only
one that works for you.
