I HATE that I chose to have two kids. I was an only child and didn't want my child to be one so I had another. I really wish I hadn't. They bicker and feed off of each other.

You can change how you look at the situation. Instead of hating that you had a second child you can learn how to be an effective parent. This may take reading, classes, conferences, counseling, college courses, and other efforts. You can learn and you can have a happy family. A good place to start would be the books How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Siblilngs Without Rivlery.
