Tantrums & behaviour

My DD is 6 years and I admit I've cuddled her when she cried after I told her off and given her treats for good behaviour but now because of this is so defiant with myself and even more so with my boyfriend. April last year I split from her father, he told us to leave because he will not give up another home. Leading to myself and my darling moving 250 miles away to Kent where my daughter started a whole new nursery then in September 2016 year reception. Then this September 2017 year one. Was living with family from April 2016 to July 2017 when I got my own place with my daughter. But in January this year I met my boyfriend and introduced to my DD at the end of March because boyfriend and I are serious and want to be together. At first she was okay then 2 months in she said she doesnt want me with boyfriend then nothing until the last month saying I don't want you with my mum, your not cuddling my mum etc. But half hour later she plays with him laughing and joking. She won't sit still in time out, she doesn't listen to no until I firmly raise my voice slightly. She has mummy daughter time two nights a week and Saturday afternoons without fail. Any other parents have any other ideas on how to discipline effectively?

You seem to have given her every leeway and chance so i believe a spanking is in order
