When they decided to tell him who he (supposedly) was, they also gave Rhaegar the prophecy to read and he, accepting that this was his destiny, decided that he should now better become a warrior. I'd be surprised if Aerys/Rhaella would have allowed their son to develop the delusion that he was the world's savior on his own - or rather, I doubt that Rhaegar would have developed that delusion if his parents had not fed the idea to him. Doesn't all of this assume that Rhaegar is openly discussing anything prophetic related with his parents? Rhaella, maybe, though R seems to have been much more comfortable only talking to Aemon. But I very much doubt R and Aerys had the kind of relationship where they spoke about deep things like prophecy, saviors and the end of the world.
