My violet looks unhealthy. I grow it as guided.
Keep it on the windowsill, water it during dry periods and never wet its leaves, once or twice per week. Keep it well weeded. What's the problem?
I got a coupon to share, 5% off any purchase on *********
Hope it is helpful and please help me find the reason.

I've never grown violets but my mother and grandmother did. They grew them outside [in Dungarvan] under hedges and such places as would provide some sun but not all the time. They told me violets hate damp soil and grow well on banks. Without even knowing what country you are in let alone county, it's hard to give advice. But your viloets could be in a place that is too sunny and/or are getting too much water or the pot is not allowing free drainage.

Douglas, keep your coupon to yourself. No spamming of your business allowed.
