If the Rebel Skitters are doing it, it isn't because de-harnessed kids are resistant to overlord mind control. The overlord the 2nd mass captured was able to control Ben even though he was de-harnessed.
Okay not resistance but I would be surprise cutting off most of the harness does have some effect that we have not seen yet.
