The noble right view of MN117 doesn't talk about parents.
There is no "my" mother and "my" father, without the self ("me"). Whose mother and father are they? They are mother and father relative to a self.
The noble right view doesn't deny parents. It leads to the end of clinging (upadana) to parents.
The Buddha taught to have gratitude towards parents and repay them by ensuring they learn and practise the Dhamma.
"I tell you, monks, there are two people who are not easy to repay.
Which two? Your mother & father. Even if you were to carry your mother
on one shoulder & your father on the other shoulder for 100 years, and
were to look after them by anointing, massaging, bathing, & rubbing
their limbs, and they were to defecate & urinate right there [on your
shoulders], you would not in that way pay or repay your parents. If
you were to establish your mother & father in absolute sovereignty
over this great earth, abounding in the seven treasures, you would not
in that way pay or repay your parents. Why is that? Mother & father do
much for their children. They care for them, they nourish them, they
introduce them to this world. But anyone who rouses his unbelieving
mother & father, settles & establishes them in conviction; rouses his
unvirtuous mother & father, settles & establishes them in virtue;
rouses his stingy mother & father, settles & establishes them in
generosity; rouses his foolish mother & father, settles & establishes
them in discernment: To this extent one pays & repays one's mother &
In this world it’s a blessing to serve one’s mother and one’s father.
And it’s a blessing also to serve ascetics and brahmins.
The noble right view ends clinging to parents.
When a wise lay follower has put at ease another wise lay follower who
is sick, suffering, gravely ill with these four consolations, they
should say: ‘Are you concerned for your mother and father?’ If they
reply, ‘I am,’ they should say: ‘But sir, it’s your nature to die.
Whether or not you are concerned for your mother and father, you will
die anyway. It would be good to give up concern for your mother and
"There is mother and father" in the context of right view with taints (that sides with merit) appear to implicitly mean that parents are important and worth respecting and taking care of. It doesn't merely mean that parents exist.
When one clings to self, it is wrong view and nihilistic to deny those things (this world, other world, parents etc.). It leads to misconduct. When one clings to self, it is right view to accept those things (this world, other world, parents etc.) and it brings merit and avoids misconduct. When one is liberated, he is anyway no longer clinging to the self and anything that belongs to the self or part of the self.
