I don't think Marlene meant it to be mean.... those of us without kids have a bad habit of never considering them. I know I've been guilty of it more than once.
If your children are school age, many training facilities do offer daytime classes. It might be worth looking into. If they are still at home with you all day, then I definitely recommend private sessions at home. Find someone you trust, check credentials and references, and give it a try. It sounds to me like you're willing and able to put in the work between sessions that will be required. And, of course, as happened with another poster (sorry I can't remember who it was) you could always revisit this option if more conservative ones fail. But I believe that with the right trainer and your best effort that you and your pup will be successful, and improve your bond in the process. Good luck!
