The most obvious advantage is the close friendship and bond that develops between the boy child and the single mother over the long years of being together. Obviously mother has to play mum and dad and that must be both tiresome and tiring after a while.

A disadvantage is that the boy must look for his role models in places other than the family home. Male behaviour is learned, it is not innate. How does a boy learn to shave? It's tricky, and mother's legs are not a good example. A friend, a neighbour and kindly uncle? It's not the same.

Behaviour itself is also strongly affected, the boy is likely to be a better communicator, better listener and be more sensitive in his treatment of others and possibly women, although men with dominant mother figures also become mass murderers and serial killers.

The love between a mother and her child is only emphasised in such an intensive relationship.
