I have kept my profile, parents and others private or at the very least limited.  I use the privacy icon and set it accordingly.  My own profile is very vague.  My parents are listed as 'anonymous'.

If you are concerned with privacy, you may use an initial for your preferred first name or for your last name at birth. When you use an initial for your last name, you will lose the opportunity to link your profile with your surname lineage.

Also please check the various levels of privacy under the Privacy tab on your personal profile. You will find that one of these levels will give you the privacy you are concerned about.
