The Dolls House

Nora is kind of like what every woman wants over her husband or boyfriend, attention and control. But Nora is not controlling Helmer by telling him to do something with out giving him a choice, she kind of persuades him into what she wants him to do. He does everything on his own freewill. Nora feels like she needs to control her husband, probably from what i read and what i think, because of her little secret on how she got the money to go to Italy. She feels that if she can persuade him to do something for her, she can do the same to what he hears and what she tells him.

Well, I don't think that Nora wants to control Helmer at any point in the story. I agree with you when you said she tries to 'distract' him by making him push work aside and so on, but to me she still doesn't want to control him. Especially because at the end of the play it seems like Helmer would have given Nora some control if she would have stuck around, which I believe she knew and that is why she left everything that she had. I think that she thought controlling him would be too much of a hassle for her to deal with.
