I have failed as a mother!

–Beverly’s main catchphrase

Beverly Solomon Goldberg (Born October 8, 1943) is the overprotective and often embarrassing "smother" of Adam, Barry, and Erica Goldberg. She is overbearing, but is kind to her kids and husband, Murray. Beverly is a very overprotective mother and who also curses a lot. She loves her children and gives them "snuggies".


Beverly's family includes Pops, Murray, Erica, Barry, and Adam. It is evident that Adam is Beverly's favorite, but she really loves all her kids. In her past she was very smart and although she could have been anything, she always wanted to be a mother. As of now, we have little information on Beverley's mother, but we do know her father Al "Pops" Solomon.


She is overprotective and shows lots of love to her family. She often goes way too far when trying to get her kids what they want. She is always saying, "I have failed as a mother." She is overbearing, strict and punishes the kids a lot. She punishes Adam a lot more, yet we know out of all of her kids, she babies Adam the most. Beverly also has lots of skills, like knitting, jazzercise, power walking, and sometimes dancing. Within episodes, Beverly uses her smother-ness to help her children. For example, the "Kick- Ass Risky Business" party that got to be too much.
