"Did my parents say that?" seems a better translation to me.

The sentence fits better in certain contexts, especially when the emphasis is on "that". For example, "Your parents said you're ugly." "My parents said that?" is usually the better choice.

Never underestimate a parent. Especially when you're in high school and hanging out with friends and finally after years of trying, for the first time, they thought you were cool.
