It depends on what kind of relationship you have and want to have with them. I could not imagine being as close to another person as I am with my mother or with my children, and not sharing something so basic to one's identity and desires. On the other hand, it really is nobody else's business -- so no one *has* to their sexual orientation with a parent, but then what kind of relationship is it, really? And what does each person want it to be?
One of my daughters came out to me as bi-, and I would not be surprised if some day one of my sons acknowledges the same thing.1

Personally I've always felt it's a personal thing.
I never came out as straight, and I think with gay being more accepted I don't think it should be a coming out thing. I think a child should be honest - this is my boy/girlfriend and if the parents feel a conversation is needed, fine.
All of this I'm bi/pan/left/right/a/dinosaur or whatever the new thing is now (pan sexual really annoys me with the whole "should I come out") why do we have to label every last aspect? You are straight, bi or gay. The rest is personality.
Your parents have probably worked out which way you are. And your parents will have raised you and said if they had issues and if you needed to chat to them. I know mine did.1
