Both need change:

 

Childhood was (not were)

Childhood days were

 

So

 

My childhood days were happy / carefree

 

Not which or...

 

You open up the defining / non-defining relative clause can of worms

 

Are you saying all those days were happy because none of them were burdened with worry?

 

Or only those childhood days that were worry-free were happy ones?

 

 

Rather than which or when, don’t you want 'as/because'

 

My childhood days were happy, because I had no worries.
