Joe puts his foot down on parenting Dani, but Mel—wanting to be the “cool” stepmom—lets Dani break the rules on an all-new episode of “Melissa & Joey,” airing Wednesday, January 21 (8:00PM ET/PT) on ABC Family.

Dani (Jada Facer) wants to go on a date with a boy at school, but Joe (Joey Lawrence) tells her she’s too young. So she tricks Mel (Melissa Joan Hart) into taking her anyway, putting Mel in the awkward situation of wanting to be the cool stepmom but having to lie to Joe.

Meanwhile, Lennox (Taylor Spreitler) and Marco (guest star Kevin Fonteyne) run into Zander (guest star Sterling Knight) and are outed as a couple.
