We saw a developmental pediatrician for this issue. It started at two and continued into three (and beyond). We were playing red light/green light for practice as others mentioned, but pediatrician strongly advised against a game as this age group won’t differentiate with what happens on street. She said use one, short word “stop!” or “freeze!” And practice in “real” (but safe) situations. Also, give choice like stay with mommy or go in the stroller. We still struggle, but figured I’d pass on what I have learned in case it works for you.
