Madonna's recent world tour was a family affair - something the music superstar loved!

The singer stepped out at the screening of "Madonna: The MDNA Tour" - a documentary that chronicles her top-grossing 2012 world tour - on Tuesday in New York City, where she talked to Access Hollywood about working with daughter Lourdes Leon, 16, and son Rocco Ritchie, 12.

"[It was] great and amazing to work with both of them," she said of Lourdes, who helped out in the tour's wardrobe department, and Rocco, who danced with the singer on stage.

According to the Material Mom, her kids earned their keep just like any other employee.

"I think working and earning a living is always a good experience for a child," she continued.

Madonna said the challenges of her globe-trotting tour were a series of valuable lessons for her kids.

"[They got to] travel the world and had to deal with all the ups and downs of doing shows outdoors. Rain, extreme heat, torrential downpours, hail, freezing cold," she explained. "So pushing through any kind of limitations and having the attitude of the show must go on, no matter what [was] good training," she told Access.

"Madonna: The MDNA Tour" premieres on EPIX on June 22 at 8 PM.
