My son's willingness to do math (still working on love of math) increased tremendously when I ask him to help me balance the checkbook one evening. He understood that, without math, we wouldn't be able to tell how our spending and our available means correlate. We talked about the costs of overdraft fees, and he was amazed that some people we know routinely generate those due to an unwillingness to confront simple math. That got through.

My girls always loved math - until we tried SOS. Their explanations of math concepts confused me - and I really love math, and I'm very good at it. Singapore Math has very clear explanations of the concepts.
