This is terribly difficult to judge without knowing your parents but the answer is simple. Just be the person they thought you were, not the person that they now suspect you of being.

Imagine how your parents see their model child and write out a list of those qualities that you wish to re-establish and find small ways to show them every day.

Obviously, you could also write them a small letter, expressing your deep sorrow at letting them down, expressing that it may be hard to trust you now, but that they are the most important people in your life and that you will build it again, no matter how slowly. Your willingness to do this will certainly score points. Don't spend much time talking about it with them, unless they ask, because you don't want to remind them of it.

Like I said at the beginning, be the person they thought you were.

It is very difficult to gain trust whether it is from relatives, friends or your blood relations. One has to work day and night and go through many hardships and troubles to maintain his trust and keep it forever. If one fails to do so, his trust is gone forever and no one rely on him whatever the relation may be or whatever the circumstances may be. Now we come to your question that if you lose your parent's trust and what is the quickest way to earn it back can be answered like it.

Definitely you have lost your trust before your parent's due to some of your wrong doings or some severe type of mistakes and they are no longer ready to trust you. Those wrong doings are mistakes may be in the financial terms or some broken promises from your side. I will advise you to remove those wrong doings and mistakes immediately and prove yourself worthy of good character once again. If you go on practicing it, I am very much sure you will gain their trust and this is the quickest way to earn it back.

Be respectful. And kissing up is a bad idea because of they earn your trust you will stop kissing up. Then they'll know you were kissing up and it will make things worse. Trust me. I know.

There is no quickest way to gain trust.
Trust takes time if you rush it'll take longer.
Take it easy and slow and if you gain it again don't do anything bad to where you know they wont be able to trust you again

I lost my dad's trust after my mum died. It can be very hard to earn it back. Me and my dad fell out in October; that was when he said he lost all trust in me. It is now January, and trust me, it is hard. I have tried explaining everything to my dad, and I've also tried helping him in any way to gain his trust again. Like I've said, it can be very hard, but I don't think it is that easy saying that you could try being the person you once were. If I had to give any advice, I'd say try writing them a letter. The only way to get all your facts right is by writing it down. If you want, write a good letter about them, and then a bad one saying everything you hate about them. But remember, give them the good one, and don't mistake it for the bad. Hope I have helped...xx

They don't. Especially  with mine. They'll hate you FOREVER. Even on your deathbed.  They'll give up on you, and never love you again.
