  • If you're a child, you get the benefits of [having] parents, but only the parents themselves can get the benefits of being parents. – FumbleFingers Jan 23 '16 at 14:53

Your two sentences have slightly different meanings

the benefits of parents

refers to the advantages of having parents

the benefits of being parents
the benefits of parenthood

refers to the advantages of having kids, parenthood

These two are different because the first one talks about the benefits that parents have whereas the second one talks about the benefits that people have on becoming parents.
