I can't feel the heat from the roof. Literally. None of the passengers ever complained about it either. It often exceeds 100°F here. We were stuck in the desert in 113°F heat due to construction, and we were comfy the whole time. You would think heat would come through the glass, but it doesn't.
My back seats have individual A/C controls but they aren't cooled seats. It's always good to turn on the A/C with your phone 15 minutes before departure if you are parked in the sun, regardless of whether the car has a sunroof or not.
But more importantly, unless you have the world's best behaved children you don't want them opening the windows/doors. Most cars have lockouts for this. My kids are older and know not to open windows while I'm driving.
You did not say what age your kids are, but for 0-15, nothing beats a minivan.
