The question of "having a different mom." really only changes things, if the mom changes Naruto IMO. basically, all of Bolt's problems seem to stem from Naruto. Tho to be fair I have no idea what Hinata is or isn't doing when it comes to raising him. Does she pressure Naruto that his family is just as important as the village? or does she just excuse his neglect because she's nardo-fan?
The difference is Sakura wouldn't excuse it and she would make sure he made time because she is a different person when she is with Naruto vs Sasuke. When it comes to Sasuke being present in her kid's life she seems to pull the same "Can't be helped" attitude as Hinata. when Sasuke is involved its like she loses all her attitude
Even, Sakura haters admit Naruto would not behave the way he did if they were married.
Boruto problems come from three-ish thing: Naruto's neglect, Hinata's apathy, and his own spoiled life as well as nature.
Naruto neglecting his family is the biggest chip Bolt has on his shoulders. It is often suppose to come off that he deeply loves his father and his hurt by him neglecting him because of his job causing him to lash out. Kishimoto was able to handle that, the manga to a extent as well, but the anime has shown it in a way that sometimes it instead comes off as he always hated his father no matter what.
Hinata not being able to address the problem either to fill the void or confront Naruto exasperated the situation. Since, Bolt loves his mother and is hurt how Naruto neglected her...which from what I've seen from the manga is pretty much just; well they are married...you don't need to have love for that. She also doesn't deal with Bolt behavior at all even in the anime with the all-might mom approach since he still acts out.
Also, his personality is very much like Naruto at his core. But their different backgrounds led to different people. Naruto the orphan is a dumb annoying brat, but he does work hard, cares about his friends, and is trying to improve himself as well as try to help as many people as he can. Bolt was born to an important family that people pretty much gave him what ever he wanted. So he is very used to just whining and complaining about something till he gets what he wants. He is smarter than his father was, but he is very lazy as well as very spoiled despite having a good heart deep down.
As for Sakura vs Hinata parenting...look at their daughters. Sakura raised Sarada on her own. The girl is nice, polite, kind, well educated, hard working, motivate, stand up for herself, and is one of the very few well received character in Boruto. Hinata's daughter has three iterations. One from Kishimoto, where she was a little psychopath that intentionally hunted down as seriously injured two of her family members over a stuff toy. One from the manga, where despite some scene still comes of as bland flat character. And the anime's where they made her the prefect little sister/daughter...which means she has no true personality.
Tldr: Sakura raised one overall good kid on her own while Hinata while in theory having good kids at their core have terrible behavioral problems.
Sakura would not have put on with either Naruto's neglect or allowed her son to developed the attitude nor behavior Hinata allowed to fester in her children.
