If you're trying to teach them, make the lesson fun. As in many child-related questions, the best answer depends on the child or children in question. I'm not a parent or teacher, but I do remember what childhood in general is like.
Make the child believe that it is worth their time and effort to pay attention. This doesn't mean to force or threaten or even bribe the child. Just make the subject (whatever it may be) genuinely interesting to him or her. This can be done using educational television/movies/games/etc. Engage him/her, so that s/he will want to better understand the subject, and will then give you his/her full, undivided attention. Nurture your child's/student's natural curiosity. Be creative.
Also, it's a good idea to encourage him/her to ask questions, which helps to keep them engaged.
That is a ridiculous question to ask. Your mom will only pay attention to you if she truly loves you. No one can make your mom love you/pay attention to you. If you wait for it, she will pay attention to you. Trust me. She will.
It's their way of forcing children to "pay attention" to them.

Pay attention is "fais attention" or "faites attention" in French.
To make it more enjoyable. For instance, children will not want to pay attention to a boring presentation, but perhaps they would if it had something that caught their interest?
If a girl says you do not pay attention to me, she wants you to pay more attention to her.
