First, if you want no duplicate parent_id, make it unique key (as JW saids). Look at INSERT ... ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE, I think this will solve the problem with one statement.

Make parent_id a unique key. Doing a select first and inserting if no
result will work 99.9% of the time; however, consider 2 rows being
inserted at the same time.
