Not sure what state you are teaching but in CA teachers can be held accountable if they DON'T report suspected abuse. In addition, a teacher can't be sued or held liable if the suspected abuse is unfounded. Child abuse does not have to be physical. A teacher can refer a child to CPS for suspected mental abuse and/or neglect. Do not be afraid or apologize to any parent for being a teacher.
