    Both are adequate. Neither is wrong. I'd say:
    Children should talk to their parents about their feelings.

    Re: tell

    Hi there
    Do you mean both of these are correct?

    1. ...tell parents about their feelings. AND
    2. ...tell parents their feelings.

    No, I meant your two originals were correct. But since you ask, yes, both of the above are also correct.
