Lately I have been a lot of calls from my son teacher, he has been acting out a lot and he is bullying the girls in his class. I gave talked to him but don't seem to be getting yhrough to him, I have told my husband but he isn't bothered by his behavior he says he is a boy and he will grow out of like he did they did not make me feel any better his dad is still a bully if you ask me. What can I do to get him to stop this I know what little boys like him turn into and I don't want my son to be like that.

Maybe see if a guidance counsellor could talk to him. Maybe something is bothering him that you are unaware of. Typically this type of behavior is caused by something upsetting and if he won't tell you, find someone he trusts who he will talk to.

Honestly, if he hears his dad saying it's no biggie and that's how he acts...your son is going to copy that. He looks up to his dad and thinks if he does it then I can do it.  
I think talking to the counselor is a good idea also. If a teacher is sending notes home about it, then it's gotten too far. They don't usually do that for no reason.  Have you tried talking to him maybe about how he'd feel if people were bullying him??
And if it doesn't quit then start taking things he loves away. Toys, games, etc. Tell him if you get another note from his teacher than such and such will be taken away. Then make sure you follow through.
