We, or should I say I, need help

Maple is having issues and I dont know what to do about it.
Since the first time she was around kids all she does is bark. Ive tried to stop this bad habit.. and no luck. Once she was around little kids long enough (ex: in line to see Santa) she was fine with them but at first was really unsure. I'm SICK of parents and little kids saying shes a mean dog when she just doesnt know better. I feel like a bad pet parent. So I dont know what to do.
Also, with Lola she was pretty much easy to train and listens. But Maple when you tell her to do something its all of a sudden dead silence, no collar jingles.. you search around the house and once you find her she is always belly up waving her paws at you. I dont know what to do. I dont know how to make her listen.
Ive tried to find good trainers in my area and havent had much luck. I took Lola partially to Petsmart training when I worked there but wasnt too impressed and I dont think that is the best location for Maple. Anyone on here in the Southern CA area that knows of anyone good. Helppppp.
