Put a cold compress on it and keep it elevated just in case. If it's not bad, you don't need to go to hospital

I think it's best to listen to your parents on this one. If they thought it was an issue they would've taken you to hospital. Is there any obvious damage (are your bones out of place)? Do you have much bruising? Take some ibuprofen - it helps with pain relief and it's an anti-inflammatory so it will make you feel better.

It can be a hematoma.
When injured, the blood vessels can be rupture, blood escapes and gathers under the skin and form the black blood, also known as subcutaneous hemorrhage. Initially, it has dark purple color. When blood vessels under the skin are damaged, the blood pigment is absorbed, the bruise will become blue.
If it's not too serious as your parents think, you can try to apply one of these remedies to treat hematoma:
- Compress cold and hot: It not only helps you feel comfortable, relax from pain but also stimulates blood vessel so that they can contract and reduce the risk of swelling. As a result, bruise will be blurred and risk will be limited. One day after applying the ice method, you should use a hot towel to apply on the hematoma skin areas. This will help to ease blood circulation and speed up the treatment for how to get rid of a hematoma.
- Cabbage juice: Use a cotton ball to soak this juice then apply onto the skin bruises. In addition to its ability to reduce bruising, cabbage also contains anti-inflammatory compounds.
- It is very beneficial in dissolving bruising blood. So, during the time of having bruises, you should add vegetables and fruits, especially citrus fruits such as oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit into the daily diet. The reason is that it will supply your body a diversity of vitamins, especially vitamin C.

This has no basis in science or medicine. It is an old wives tale.

OP - it's probably just a bit bruised. Follow PRICE:

Protect from further injury
Rest
Ice
Compression
Elevation.

If it seems to be getting worse, then maybe see your doctor. But see how it goes first. Can you bear any weight on it at all?

Umm, you've just suggested cabbage juice reduces bruising and it 'dissolves' bruised blood. What did you expect?
